Come all to the citadel behind walls of bone
and see the roads that wind away to the edge
where many go but none have passed
beyond into the world that sighs
filled with promises of a thousand ends
and pain far greater than what the city knows
Monsters play in shadows of the horizon
and sometimes glance across the empty lands
to the white walls in the distance
wondering what beasts live in that place
sending up clouds to join the iron sky
and why they never come to visit
Cheers to everyone keeping above the surface of the ocean of B. S.
